DEAR DC, JUST GIVE GDT THE WHOLE WORLD
Guillermo del Toro talks “Dark Universe” aka “Justice League Dark” with MTV’s Josh Horowitz and explains how it could tie into DC’s bigger plans (if those exist). He also explains how his Hulk TV series just kind of “faded away.”
ALSO, STOP ASKING GDT ABOUT ’HELLBOY 3’!
The future king of kaiju said of the sequel:
It’s very unlikely it’ll happen because you need things to converge so strongly…Larry Gordon, Universal, the rights, Ron [Perlman’s] and my availability, Mike [Mignola’s] blessing…
It’s not gonna happen. Ever. Let’s move on now.
THIS IS A WEIRD ONE
The new poster for Spike Lee’s U.S. “Oldboy” is an odd bird, but I kind of love it. He looks like a vampire emerging from a coffin. Also, he looks like he lives in that box, as opposed to being trapped in it.

Are you following the legendary artist? You totally should. His stories are freaking genius!
In the early '70s, I became a member of The Witch Doctors, a club so elite they sometimes didn't even know who was in it. And maybe why!

SEE YA, TROY!
Donald Glover is going part-time for “Community” season 5. Let’s just kill it, already, okay? I know Dan Harmon is coming back, but season 4 crushed what was left of the series.
YOUR FRIEND TO THE END!
“Curse of Chucky” trailer. Yes please.
COOL COVER ALERT!
Love Gene Ha’s variant for Vertigo’s new series “Coffin Hill”!
“Coffin Hill” is:
COFFIN HILL stars Eve Coffin, a rebellious, teenage lowlife from a high-society family with a curse that goes back to the Salem Witch trials.
Following a night of sex, drugs and witchcraft in the woods, Eve wakes up naked, covered in blood and unable to remember how she got there. One friend is missing, one is in a mental ward—and one knows that Eve is responsible.
After a stint as a Boston cop that ends in a bullet wound and unintended celebrity, Eve returns to Coffin Hill, only to discover the darkness that she unleashed ten years ago in the woods was never contained. It continues to seep through the town, cursing the soul of this sleepy Massachusetts hollow, spilling secrets and enacting its revenge.
Set against the haunted backdrop of New England, COFFIN HILL explores what people will do for power and retribution. Noted novelist Caitlin Kittredge, author of the Black London series, brings a smart, mesmerizing style to comics. Artist Inaki Miranda (FABLES) brings his dynamic storytelling to COFFIN HILL, following an acclaimed run on FAIREST.
’Til tomorrow, gang!
